Woodley House Food Pantry
Valenti House – 2711 Connecticut Ave., NW – Washington, DC 20008
Open Every Tuesday Afternoon 1-3 pm
The Woodley House Food Pantry is centrally located near Woodley Park Metro and bus line and is open every Tuesday afternoon from 1 to 3 pm. Proof of DC residency is needed. Please bring a current government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license, passport or other identification card, along with proof of residency such as utility bill, etc.
The idea for this Food Pantry came from one of our Skills Training Specialists who kept hearing from members of our Supported Independent Living Apartment Program how difficult it was some months just to put food on the table. Sometimes they had to choose between food or medication. After careful thought, we decided that a Food Pantry might be something that Woodley House should embrace … and then began the hard work to make it happen.
We applied to the William S. Abell Foundation for start-up funding for this new program and in November 2011, we opened the Woodley House Food Pantry in partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank. It is located in our transitional home, Valenti House and is a true asset to our community. We are able to offer food staples and fresh produce in season to Woodley House residents and our community neighbors-in-need which is so gratifying during this difficult economic climate.
